KTC., I TO. Albany, Feb. 25,1868. The mala portion of the Bonnie Houston IhJa moraine *H occupied Is rending the reporta, pro and oon, on the Metropolitan Pollco bill. Senators Noion and Halstead, republicane, being a majority of the committee to which {Senator Mather's repeal bill was referred, submitted ? lengthy report, which was read by the former gentleman. It, of course, took the republican aide of the question, and concluded by recommending that there existed no necessity for the repeal of the law. Senator Mather introduced his minority report. He adduces various reasons why the legislature should repeal the law, and contends that the State authorities possess no right under the constitution to deprive the citizens of New York of the immunities granted by their charter, which they bave enjoyed for a long series of years. The reading of both reports wss listened to with much attention. A large number of both were ordered printed; but before "they come from the Legis'ative press the [ lepers will circulate them to every reader taking an interest in the matter. Senator Diren's amendments to the Police bill are the results or bis own reflections. They were drawn by his own pen, without any consultation with any New Vork republicans, excent Commissioner Nye,whose suggestions, however, the Senator has not strictly endorsed. Mr. Diven -will induce the republicans of the legislature to adopt his views as the party p atform. There is an apparout fairness in the mode of selecting Commissioners; but still his plan ignores the cbarterod rights of New York and Brooklyn equaliy with the provision of the present law. By lopping off Westchester and Richmond the republicans aciriuwMw the wront and injustice inflicted unon the ctti zensoftboee (wo couoties m incorporating them in the present law. Mr. Liven'a propositions are likely to sneered in the Senate, but will fall in the House; and the consequence will be that neither repeal nor amendment -can be accomplished, as the preient Legislature ia constituted However, the rejiealers are j at tided in making the attempt, and a refusal by the republicans will only Increase the exchetnent during the coming year, and multiply democratic votes next November for Governor, members of the House and local offices. Senator Stow'e bill, having for ita object the restrain Ing railroad managers from issuing free passes to any public officers, including numbers of the Legislature, was up in the ScDate this morning. He made an able speech in its support, denouncing the practioe of issuing free tickets as a species of corruption and bribery, both to the -courts and the legislature. Many honorable Senators discard tbe idea, and throw back the insinuation that because they are invited to take a trip or so upon a railroad, that therefore they are necessarily pledged to vote for bills benefitting railroads. It is also said that if members vote for a bill preventing the taking and using such tickets, they are thus fortifying themselves against the imputation of being susceptible of bribery. So, upon tbe whole, it looks as if rallrea-is will not be molested in extending their invitations to persons who may be willing to take a trip "free, gratis, for nothing." The secret executive session war again in full blast yesterday. The discussion was upon the Governor's nominations for Harbor Masters. He ovorthrew Schultz, Brennwn and Brsinard. and recommended Jacob Podge^Reuben Coffin and Pavid Stewart. The three former have been in office for a score of years, either as regulars or bold-over favorites. They were always on tbe Albany slate, and consequently felt safe in tbe hands of the regency hero. But tie Governor thinks they have enjoyed that lucrative patronage long enough, and consequently desires that other good republicans shall supply their places. Now, the preeeot incumbents have three or four republican friends In the Senate, and as neither the democrats nor Americans wiU confirm the Dominations, the almost certain result will be that Schultz k Oo. will hold over another year or two.

The popular Watte and Leake Asylum, an inetttution of indispensable necessity now, was erected out of a portion of the proceeds of that estate, and though the claim of this man Hay has been rejected over and over again, still Henator Patterson, a gentleman of correct and economical view* generally, now seems disposed to allow the doori of the courts to be opened to an entering wedge for lobby spoliations. The case has been settled long since, and should not be suffered to be exhumed by legislative authority. Dr. Brardreth's resolution making inquiry as to the number of tons of railroad iron that have been imported for the use of roads in this State was adopted; report to be made within thirty days.

He moved that leave of absence during the balance of the session be granted him, with pay for the whole session. The Spkauk ruled the motion out of order.

The House went Into Committee of the Whole?Mr. Ifan ford in the chair?on the Governor's message, and reported progress.

A lecture oa thle aubject wm delivered yeaterdey evening, ? the BU/veeaat laaUtute, by Hon F. A. Oookling. After a review of the growth of the oountry, end particularly of New York, Um lecturer proceeded to e dlecueeion ot the cmjms by which it wu produced For myeeir, Mid be, I believe that the crank wan the leg' lunate and inevitable rauua of influence* which bu long been at work, ud which, without a re re real of the laws of economical science, could hare ^?ad no other onclusion. That it was aot produced either by a paoic, the suspension of specie payments by the banks, or by any kindred cause, is conclusively proved by the fact that although the banks have long since resumed, and although capital is now more abundant and the rate of interest lower than it has been for years, the prostration of business Is nearly as great as ever. The volume of businers, be continued, as shown by the exchanges at the Clearing House, is one-fair less than it was In the month of Augurt, having fallen to ona third the amount for the week ending on the 2Sth of December last It Is true that one reason for this falling off in the busineas of the banks la that the race of speculators?especially those insatiable cormorants, the railroad corporations?have disappeared from the market; and it Is devoutly to b? hoped that ' the places which knew thorn will know them no mute forever." But it cannot be denied that the reduction in the amount of regular and legitimate business since the month of August last has been very nearly in the proportion stated A sensation was lately caused In England by the declaration or the loo-oo Times that British commerce was rotten to the core. But the fact itself has generally been regarded as the rea! cause of the revulsion whioh has there taken place. The key to our reverses Is to be found in a general unsoundness in the business, to ^ay nothing ot the morals of the country. An investigation of the coodition of almost all our financial and Industrial interests, it is beieved, will disclose the Tact' that'their foundation had bocome unsubstantial and Inllom. Our foreign tounsge, under the impulse of temporary and exceptional causes, such as the Irish famine, the discovery of gold m California and Australia, and the Crimean war, had outgrown the demand of a regular commerce. Besides, a prefer eels, which bids (air to revolutionize the carrying trade of the world and to restore to Great Britain her commercial pre eminence. A condition of thing* not very dissimtiar to that just described exists in regard to the'railroads. Perhaps it is Dot too much to say that the railroad mania of the lasi, few years, when its history comes to be written will b* regarded as among the marvels of finance, akin to Law's Mississippi scheme end the South Sea bubble. Nothing but an extraordinary combination of circumstance* could have fi eated in so short a time and in a comparatively thinly peopled country like the United States a railroad system of the vast proportions and cost which have been already described. In this hotbed develcpemeut, dis honestY and bad faith have had no small share. A tingle instance may suflloe to illustrate the manner in which many roads bavt latterly been coastrrctcJ The American Almanac for the year l*f>S. cede* the title of Railroads, has the following record A'ne York. Length in operation W mil?e.

It ? said that before one dollar of stock was subscribed for tbis work the bonds of the comr any were sold ib the London market to the amount of one million two hundred thousand dollars, ostinfibly for the purposeoJLpurcUgj-iug the iron to lay the track, and that one of tie macafers of the scheme? wlioec (MM, for sume uiirevcalcd reason, was kept on; of view in the organization of the company?receive ! a commission of ten per cent or a gross aura of one hundred and twenty thousand dollars for endorsing there bonds New that the read baa tjcen built it is entirety worthless, worse indeed than nothing, since it cannot be made to pay the running exp*nses, ami it is to he presumed the Lords are not much bettor. Unhappily this company is but the representative of a numerous class of our railroad con*>rations. A vicious system of credit has laid the foundation of tbis mighty struc'ure of indebtedness and insolvency. The Secretary of the Treasury says in bis last annual roport ? ?' In answer to a circular letter addressed to the various railroad corporations of the conntry, information has been received (rora which it appears that the capital of these companies amounts tc 9491,000,000, their Indebtedness to 9417.000.000. The annuel interest upon the latter sum is 926,000,000. lli*-ir MBMl income was 946.000.000. Had we psid as we went along, which in the esse or a permanent investment ot capital ought to he done, it L manifest that such a condition ot things as now exists could never I bare arisen. Can it be wondered at that, built upon sucn ; a foundation, the railroad* of the cour.tr/ are nit worth ( over one bait their cost? May it not he said, in the language of the 1/ondoij 7ieies, " the railnad aystem of the country is rotten to the corev" The direct leas of between ftiur and five hundred millions is net by any mean- the measure of evil which has come from this quarter By diverting a large amount of capital and labor from their accustomed channels, the construction of railroads has largely contribute! to undermine other interests, ard thus to produce the geaeral instability which led to the revulsiou. What was the condition ol the mercantile Interest when overtaken by the crisist I think it will hardly be disputed that there was much unsoundness. So t ar as this and the other large Cities are concerned, this condition of things woe due in % great measure to the inherent vioea of Die system of bus ners which has grown upw.min the lael few years?asys trm the characteristic features ot which are vaat sales, enormous expense*, long credits and cxtrara gaol riaks.
